Where Was I?

7:30am - One of the things that I enjoy doing is using my Blog's archives to see where I was on this date years ago. On April 23, 2005 I was visiting my son David. My son Joseph came over.

We all had a great time! [Link]

Family! Joseph, George and David

8:30am - Still learning
I've been RV camping since 2003. It would be seem that by now, I would know all there is to know about street camping in cities and towns.

Just the other day, Scampy and I were cruising around the neighborhood of our Clairmont Mesa Nite Camp. We turned down a dead end street and came upon a large Class-A RV camped there.

We became curious about this Class-A's Nite Camp because it was located on an incline. I never camp on an incline because it's not comfortable to sleep on an angle. Also, it's not good for RV refrigerators.

That's when it dawned on me that this was a dead end street. Hardly any traffic on a dead end street. So it's very quiet for sleeping here. Maybe that was the reason this Class-A was camped here. For the quiet!

I've be Nite Camping on a dead end street ever since!

10:30am - South Shore
On the weekends, the parking lot adjacent to the Bahia Hotel in Mission
Beach becomes extremely crowded. So, since today is Sunday, The Scampy RV Team headed over to the South Shore Boat Ramp.

This place is huge! Very little of the lot is occupied. All of the parking area is reserved for vehicles with boat trailers attached. There are perhaps 150 such parking spaces here. I've been coming here for many years. And I've never seen more than maybe 15 boat trailers in this lot!

With all of this minimally used space, does the City of San Diego allow some of the Shore Shore lot for other vehicles? For example, RVs?

NO they do not! Because the City considers RVs to be a pariah.

However, RVs come here anyway. Oh look! There's one in the pic below!

1:30pm - Boid and George
I went out to do some cleaning maintenance on Little Honda. Boid got to tweeting very loud that he wanted to be out too!

Boid told me, "I want to see the pigeons."

  1. You might want to check out the Mission Bay RC Yacht Club pond. Very near where you are.

    1. Hi Phil,

      I looked at the video on YouTube. Wow! Those little RC boats really move!
